{American Flag Cake}

I made this cake a few years back for a summer family BBQ and it was a hit. It was really fun to make. My sisters keep asking for the recipe, so here it is 🙂

2 1/4 sticks butter at room temperature
3 cups sugar
6 large eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3 cups flour
1/3 cup cornstarch
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon baking soda

Butter and flour cookie sheet pan.

Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. On medium speed, add the eggs, 2 at a time, then add the sour cream and vanilla. Scrape down the sides and stir until smooth.

Sift together the flour, cornstarch, salt, and baking soda in a bowl. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture until just combined. Pour into the prepared pan. Smooth the top with a spatula. Bake in the center of the oven for 20 to 30 minutes on 350 degrees until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool to room temperature.


2 (8oz) cream cheese at room temperature
1/2 bag of confectioners’ sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 Pint heavy whipping cream (whip and fold into the other 3)

Assemble with fresh blueberries and strawberries.
